Our fight against fear is an ongoing battle. To be victorious, we need to persevere and keep fighting. Often, we both underestimate AND overestimate our fears. We underestimate them by assuming we’ll have instant victory and not understanding the battle we will face as we advance toward increased freedom. But we also overestimate our fear by assigning our anxious thoughts more power than is warranted. We believe we’re powerless against our anxious thinking and that we’re powerless against the pull. But in Christ, we have victory. We just need to learn to live, more consistently, in the victory Christ already purchased. We need to learn to throw off everything that hinders our freedom and pursuit of our calling.
